“I can’t go home again.”

Talking about systemic racism is a hard conversation, even more so when you’re talking about its effects in a community that is already marginalized. Trying to point out the intersections is often met with resistance and constantly exhausting for those who it most affects.

Walking a 5k? 10k? Virtually no problem!

My walking (for health, fitness and weight loss) progress took a hiatus because the anticipated Spring and Summer weather had completely failed to materialize. Getting back in the habit and back on the trails is challenging, but rewarding, even virtually!

There was The Wiz before NBC’s The Wiz?!

So… this is an actual thing that happened. This tweet–now deleted–about NBC’s upcoming live version of The Wiz was trying to be clever and completely missed. Just shy of an hour later, it looks like someone set him on the...

comics: What if Peter Parker were Black?

Based off of a musing on tumblr, artist Plintoon draws four panels from a very good “What If?” idea. A lot of people talk about how it’s time for a “Black Spider-Man” while not nearly as many articles discuss why...

work: that trainer needs re-training

A while back, I said/decided/whatever that I wasn’t going to write about work. Mostly because… it’s work, but also that I am way too easy to find on the internet. However, if you recognize yourself as one of the people...

Dunn: “I’m the victim here”

I saw this in this morning’s Express paper and my morning already wasn’t off to the best start and this feels like it just derailed it. I guess part of me still hasn’t fully processed it and doesn’t want to...

comics/race: Daredevil Annual 2012

This is pw(m)c1 from the Marvel’s latest Daredevil Annual, a story featuring the title character with appearances by ClanDestine. I don’t normally read Daredevil. I think the character is cool, but the mostly “street-level hero” background doesn’t always appeal to...
